This would seem to be a place a fairly major restriction on DSSSL style
specifications. For my application, I was trying to build up a list of
characteristics specified as attribute values on my SGML document. If an
attribute is not specified in the document I don't want a characteristic
specified in the (make paragraph ...). I am using the Rainbow 2.5 DTD
and thought it would be easy to transform documents coded using this DTD
to RTF but now it seems to be very difficult. Any thoughts?
